    Guide Information
    This document is a transcription of character dialogue and text shown
    throughout the game.  This guide does cover all spoken conversations among
    characters, but does not cover all of the unspoken text involving Jamesí
    character (basically anything that doesnít have much to do with the plot,
    such as collecting or examining items).  Please email if you find any
    substantial mistakes within this document (e.g. donít email me if I put a ...
    where there should be a ....).  This guide also (obviously) contains extreme
    spoilers about the plot of the game.  I strongly suggest that you not read it
    if you have never played the game before and are considering playing it any

    A. The Observation Deck
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James is shown looking at himself in a restroom mirror.  After staring at
    himself for a short time he takes in a deep breath.*
    James:  Mary... Could you really be in this town?
    *James walks outside of restroom and into the observation deck parking lot.
    Maryís voice is then heard as James walks to the edge of the parking lot that
    overlooks Silent hill.*
    Mary:  In my restless dreams, I see that town.
           Silent Hill.
           You promised youíd take me there again someday,
           But you never did.
           Well Iím alone there now...
           In our Ďspecial placeí...
           Waiting for you...
    James:  I got a letter.
            The name on the envelope said ĎMary.í
            My wifeís name...
            Itís ridiculous, couldnít possibly be true...
            Thatís what I keep telling myself...
            A dead person canít write a letter.
            Mary died of that damn disease three years ago.
            So then why am I looking for her?
            Our Ďspecial placeí...
            What could she mean?
            This whole town was our special place.
            Does she mean the park on the lake?
            We spent the whole day there.
            Just the two of us, staring at the water.
            Could Mary really be there?
            Is she really alive... waiting for me?
    - - - - - - - - -
    B. The Graveyard
    - - - - - - - - -
    *On his journey into town, James walks into graveyard where he sees a girl
    examining one of the graves and approaches her*
    James:  Excuse me, I...
    *The girl steps back from grave and gasps in surprise*
    Girl:  I, Iím sorry...I, I...  I was just....
    James:  No, itís okay.  I didnít mean to scare you.  Iím kind of lost.
    Girl:  Lost?
    James:  Yeah, Iím looking for Silent Hill.  Is this the right way?
    *James raises his left arm and points*
    Girl:  Um yeah....  Itís hard to see with this fog, but thereís only the one
           road.  You canít miss it.
    James:  Thanks.
    Girl:  But...
    James:  Yes...?
    Girl:  I think youíd better stay away.  This uh... this town... thereís
           something... ďwrongĒ with it.  Itís kind of hard to explain, but...
    James:  Is it dangerous?
    Girl:  Maybe... And itís not just the fog either...Itís....
    James:  Okay I got it.  Iíll be careful.
    Girl:  Iím not lying.
    James:  No, I believe you.  Itís just...I guess I really donít care if itís
            dangerous or not.  Iím going to town either way.
    Girl:  But why?
    James:  Iím looking for... someone.
    Girl:  Who, who, who is it?
    James:  Someone... very important to me.  Iíd do anything if I could be with
            her again.
    Girl:  Me too.  Iím looking for my mama...  I mean my mother.  Itís been so
           long since Iíve seen her.  I thought my father and brother were here,
           but I canít find them either...  Iím sorry... Itís not your problem.
    James:  No, I... I hope you find them.
    Girl:  Yeah, you too.
    *James begins to walk towards the graveyard exit*
    +If you go back and talk to the girl a second time the following dialogue
    takes place+
    *The girl turns around from looking at a grave*
    Girl:  Arenít you looking for someone?
    James:  Thatís right...
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    C. First Encounter with an Enemy
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James walks into an area of the street where there are long streaks of blood
    and it looks like a body has been drug across the ground*
    James:  Are these marks... blood!?
    *Camera zooms to show a strange form farther down the street walking away
    from James until it disappears into the fog*
    James:  That shadow just now...
    *James follows another set of blood streaks he finds further down the street
    down into an alleyway and eventually ends up in some type of old, brick
    edifice which looks to be undergoing construction.  He hears a radio making
    strange noises within the construction site and picks it up to examine it.
    He eventually notices that the strange form he saw earlier in the street is
    in the construction area with him kneeling next to a dead body.  As the
    figure begins to walk towards James, he picks up a board with a nail in it
    and attacks the creature until it lays bleeding and motionless on the ground.
    James then examines the creature.*
    James:  Is it dead?  What the hell is it?  Itís not human...
    *As James exits the construction area he remembers the radio he picked up and
    takes it out of his jacket pocket in order to examine it.*
    James:  Oh yeah.  ...This thing broken?
    *A very staticy female voices comes on the radio as James looks it over*
    Voice:  Ja......Iím....e.
            Come to .......s....
            ..........ting f........
            .......id you k........
    James:  What the ...?  Iíd better take it anyway.  I might need it.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    A. The Unreachable Key
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James sees a key lying on the ground, but has to stick his arm through a
    metal bar partition in order to reach it.*
    James:  Thereís a key on the ground on the other side of the bars.
            If I stretch my arm out, I just might be able to reach it.
    *The player is then given the option of whether or not to pick up the key.
    If the player chooses ďYesĒ James gets down on his hands and knees and begins
    reaching out towards the key.  He is struggling to reach it when suddenly
    someone on the other side of the bars kicks the key out of his reach and then
    steps on Jamesí hand.*
    James:  Ow!!
    Little girl:  Ha-ha!
    James:  Hey wait!
    *The little girl runs down the dark hallway on the other side of the metal
    bars until she disappears.*
    James:  Damn it!
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    B. Another Dead Body
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    *Once James enters the hallway of the second floor apartments after obtaining
    the handgun he hears a loud scream as he approaches the intersection of the
    middle north-south and the east-west hallways.*
    James:  What was that!?  Some kind of noise north of here....
    *James then finds his way to room 208.  There he finds a dead body sitting in
    front of a television.  There is blood splattered across the corpses face and
    body, as well as all over the television and part of the wall.*
    James:  Oh my God....  Who couldíve...
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    C. James Meets Eddie
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James eventually makes his way to room 101 of the Woodside apartments.  Once
    he enters he finds a dead body hanging out of the refrigerator in the
    James:  What the...?  Who could have done this...
    *There is also the sound of someone being sick coming from one of the rooms
    within the apartment.  When James enters the bathroom of the apartment, he
    finds a man throwing up into the bathroom toilet.*
    Man:  It wasnít me!  I didnít do it!
    James:  Do what?
    Man: I didnít do anything.  I, I swear!  He was like this when I got here...
    James:  My uh, my nameís James.  James Sunderland.
    Man:  Ummm... Eddie.
    James:  Eddie, whoís that dead guy in the kitchen?
    Eddie:  I didnít do it.  I swear I didnít kill anybody.
    James:  Youíre not friends with that red, pyramid thing, are you?
    Eddie:  Red pyramid thing?  I donít know what yer talkiní about.
            Honest.  But I did see some weird-lookiní monsters.
            They scared the hell outta me, so I ran in here...
    James:  Well, I guess this place isnít too safe either.  What happened here
    Eddie:  Uh I, I told ya I donít know.  Iím not even from this town.  I just,
            I just...
    James:  You too, huh.  Something just brought you here, right?
    Eddie:  Umm... yeah.  You could say that...
    James:  Well whatever it is...  I think you better get out of here soon.
    Eddie:  Yeah yer right.  What about you?
    James:  Iíll leave as soon as Iím done here.  Eddie... be careful.
    Eddie:  James, I...  I... um... You be careful too.
    +If you go back to the bathroom to talk to Eddie a second time the following
    dialogue takes place+
    James:  Eddie, are you okay?
    Eddie:  Yeah, I guess...

    D. Room 109 and Angela
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James eventually makes his way to the adjacent apartment building ďBlue
    Creek ApartmentsĒ.  There, he walks into one of the bedrooms of apartment 109
    and finds the girl he talked to earlier in the graveyard lying on the floor
    holding a butcher knife and staring at herself in a mirror that takes up the
    entire area of one of the walls. *
    Girl:  Oh... itís you.
    James:  Yeah...  Iím James
    Girl:  Angela...
    James:  Angela... okay.  I donít know what youíre planning...  But thereís
            always another way.
    Angela:  Really?  But...  Youíre the same as me.  Itís easier just to run.
             Besides, itís what we deserve.
    James:  No... Iím not like you.
    Angela:  *sarcasm*Are you afraid?*/sarcasm*
             I, Iím sorry.
    James:  Itís okay...  Did you find your mother?
    Angela:  Not yet... Sheís not anywhere.
    James:  Did she live in this apartment building?
    Angela:  I donít know...
    James:  So all you know is she lived in this town?
    Angela:  What did you say?  How do you know that?
    James:  Well...  I just figured, cause this is where youíre looking for her.
            How else would I know?
    Angela:  Yeah...
    James:  Am I right?
    Angela:  Iím so tired...
    James:  So why did you come to this town anyway?
    Angela:  ...I, Iím sorry.  Did you find... the person youíre looking for?
    James:  Not yet.
    *James pulls a picture of Mary out of his jacket and stoops down to show it
    to Angela*
    James:  Her nameís Mary.  Sheís my wife...
    *Angela looks at the picture and shakes her head indicating that she does not
    recognize Mary.*
    Angela:  Iím sorry.
    James:  Itís okay.  Anyway, sheís dead.  I donít know why I think sheís here.
    Angela:  ...Sheís dead?
    James:  Donít worry, Iím not crazy.  Least, I donít think so...
    Angela:  Iíve gotta find my mama...
    *Angela stands up and begins walking towards the door*
    James:  Should I go with you?  This townís dangerous.  Now I know what you
            meant back there in the cemetery.
    Angela:  Iíll be okay by myself.  Besides, Iíd just slow you down.
    James: What about that?
    *James points to the butcher knife Angela is still holding*
    Angela:  Will you hold it for me?
    James:  Sure.  No problem.
    Angela:  If I kept it....  Iím not sure what I might do.
    *James steps towards Angela and reaches his hand out to take the knife from
    her.  Angela steps back, screams, and points the knife at James.*
    Angela:  No!! Iím sorry...Iíve been bad... Please donít...
    *Angela sets the knife on a stand before walking out of the room.  After
    watching her leave, James walks over to the stand and picks up the knife in
    order to examine it.*

    A. Second Meeting with the Little Girl
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *After James makes his way out of the apartments, he walks down an alley and
    comes across the same little girl that stepped on his hand earlier.  She is
    sitting on a wall that separates the apartments from the alleyway and is
    James:  It was you, wasnít it?  Youíre the one who stepped on my hand.
    Little girl:  *smiling* I donít know...  Maybe I did...
    James:  Whatís a little girl like you doing here anyway?
    Little girl:  Huh?  Are you blind or something?
    James:  Whatís that letter?
    Little girl:  None of your business.
    *The little girl stands up and begins to walk away*
    Little girl:  You didnít love Mary anyway!
    James:  Wait!  How do you know Maryís name!
    *By the time James finishes his sentence the girl is gone from the wall and
    nowhere to be seen*
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    B. James at the Entrance to Rosewater Park
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *After going through a tunnel, James reaches a large brick sign with the
    words ďRosewater ParkĒ on it*
    James:  So this is that park...  Mary....Are you here?
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    C. James Meets Maria
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James makes his way further into Rosewater Park until he reaches an area
    that looks out onto the water(or what used to be the water).  He sees a woman
    looking out at the lake and makes his way towards her.*
    James:  Mary?
    *The woman turns around and smiles at James*
    James:  No... youíre not.
    Woman:  Do I look like your girlfriend?
    James:  No.... my late wife.  I canít believe it...  You could be her twin.
            Your face, your voice...  Just your hair and clothes are different.
    Woman:  My name... is Maria.  I donít look like a ghost.  Do I?  See?  Feel
            how warm I am.
    *Maria then takes Jamesí right hand and places it on her chest.  James backs
    away and pulls his hand away from Maria.*
    James:  Youíre really not Mary!
    Maria:  I told you... Iím Maria.
    James:  Sorry, I was confused.
    *James begins to walk away from Maria in the direction he just came from.*
    Maria:  Where are you going?
    James:  Iím looking for Mary.  Have you seen her?
    Maria:  Didnít you say she died?
    James:  Oh yeah... three years ago.  But I got a letter from her.  She said
            she was waiting in our Ďspecial placeí.
    Maria:  And thatís here?  Anyway, I havenít seen her.  Is this your only
            Ďspecial placeí?
    *What looks to be an old black and white movie clip of Mary is shown.  This
    seems to be one of Jamesí memories*
    James:  Well, thereís the hotel, too, I guess.  The one on the lake... I
            wonder if itís still there.
    Maria:  The Lakeview Hotel?  Yeah, itís still there.  So, the hotel was your
            Ďspecial placeí, huh? Iíll bet it was.
    *James begins to walk away and Maria reaches out to grab his arm.*
    Maria:  Donít get so mad.  I was just joking.  Anyway, itís not that way.
            Itís this way.
    *Maria points in the opposite direction that James just came from.  James
    begins to walk away from Maria in the direction she just pointed.  Maria
    follows him and James looks back.*
    James:  Youíre coming with me?
    Maria:  You were gonna just leave me here?
    James:  No but...
    Maria:  With all these monsters around?
    James:  No, I just...
    Maria:  Iím all alone here.  Everyone else is gone...  I look like Mary,
            donít I?  You loved her, right?
            Or maybe you hated her...
    James:  Donít be ridiculous.
    *James begins to walk away and Maria follows him.*
    Maria:  So itís okay?
    James:  Yeah, fine.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    D.  The Bowling Alley
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James and Maria eventually make their way to Peteís Bowl-O-RamaĒ from
    Rosewater Park.  James begins to open the front door.*
    Maria:  Iíll wait here.  I hate bowling.
    James:  I didnít come here to play, you know.
    Maria:  Hurry back, okay.
    *James walks into the bowling alley and opens the only unlocked door into a
    storage room.  The scene cuts to Eddie and the little girl that James first
    saw in the apartments.  Eddie is sitting at a table eating pizza while the
    little girl is sitting next to him on the table.*
    Little Girl:  So whatíd you do?  Robbery, murder?
    Eddie:  Nah, nothing like that.
    Little Girl:  Hah!  Youíre just a gutless fatso!
    Eddie:  Whadda you have to say that for?
    Little Girl:  I thought you said the cops were after you.
    Eddie:  No, I just ran Ďcause I was scared.  I donít know what the cops are
    Laura:  But if you did something bad, why donít you just say you were sorry?
            Well... I guess I run away a lots too.
    Eddie:  Itís no good.  They wouldnít listen.  Nobody will ever forgive me.
    *The scene cuts back to James in the storeroom, but Eddieís voice is still
    heard talking to Laura.*
    Eddie:  Did ya find the lady youíre looking for...  Whatís her name... Mary?
    *James eventually finds his way into the room with Eddie and Laura.  There,
    he finds Eddie still at the table eating pizza.  However, the little girl is
    gone from the table and not seen.*
    James:  Eddie?
    Eddie:  Oh... umm, yer...
    James:  James.  We met in the apartment building.
    Eddie:  Yeah, I remember, but...
    James:  Are you alone here, Eddie?
    Eddie:  Uh, no...
    *A green bowling ball is shown rolling across the floor towards Eddie.  Eddie
    and James both look at the bowling ball and then follow the direction it came
    from with their eyes.  The little girl James met earlier in the apartments is
    shown walking towards the exit door.*
    Little Girl:  Bye-bye!
    *The little girl then walks out the door.*
    James:  Wait!  Come back!  Eddie!  Letís go after her!
    Eddie:  Huh?  Laura?  But why...?
    James:  Laura?  Is that her name?
    Eddie:  Thatís what she said.
    James:  This town is full of monsters!  How can you sit there and eat pizza!?
    Eddie:  She said she was fine by herself...  She said a fatso like me would
            just slow her down.
    James:  Forget you...
    +The following dialogue takes place if James goes back and talks to Eddie a
    second time+
    James:  Who is that girl anyhow?
    Eddie:  I donít know.  All I know is her name.  I swear.
    *James then exits to the bowling alley parking lot and finds that Maria is
    gone from where she was standing when he entered.  After he begins to walk
    outside Maria comes jogging up to him panting.*
    James:  Did a little girl run out of here?
    Maria:  Yeah, she was too fast for me!  Arenít you gonna go after her?
    +The following dialogue takes place if James tries to leave in a different
    direction than the one Maria just came walking from.+
    Maria:  Where are you going?  This isnít the way that little girl went.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    E. Alleyway behind Heavenís Night
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James and Maria eventually find there way to a small alleyway behind the
    rear parking lot at Peteís Bowl-O-Rama.  There, Maria points to a small gap
    between the intersection of a brick building and a concrete wall.*
    Maria:  She went through there.
    *James looks through the small gap and it is made obvious that there is no
    way either he or Maria can fit through it.*
    James:  Is there any other way?
    Maria:  Yeah, there is.
    *Maria points to a metal door they passed leading into the brick building.*
    Maria:  Right through there.
    *James then walks up to the door and tries to open it, but the knob on the
    door wonít turn.*
    James:  Itís no good.  Itís locked.
    *Maria then pushes James aside and starts pulling keys out of various areas
    of her clothing and looks to be using them to unlock the door.  It is not
    made clear whether Maria is actually using several different keys or if she

            There are all sorts of strange things around here...
            I canít believe you havenít even gotten a scratch on you.
    Laura:  Why should I?
    *Laura and James walk out into the hospital hallway together.  They are

    E.  Trick or Treat
    - - - - - - - - - -
    *While James and Maria are taking the elevator down to the second floor the
    sound of a microphone screeching begins coming from Jamesí radio.  Gradually
    the reception of the radio becomes better and an audience is heard cheering
    followed by an announcerís voice.*
    Announcer:  Hi there everybody, thanks for tuning in.  Welcome to another
                exciting edition of ďTrick or TreatĒ!
    *The audience is heard cheering.*
    Announcer:  Here you either answer the questions correctly and win a great
                prize, or fail to answer correctly and receive the punishment.
                It all depends on you.  And our lucky, or should I say unlucky,
                challenger today is James!  James Sunderland!  Are you ready to
                play ďTrick or TreatĒ?
                Okay, hereís your first question.  Merry-Go-Round, haunted house,
                roller coaster, ferris wheel and tea cups.  Silent Hill is home
                to a thrilling amusement park that both children and adults love.
                The question is:  What is the name of this amusement park?
                One, Fantasy Land.
                Two, Silent Hill Amusement Park.
                Three, Lakeside Amusement Park.
                Okay, quickly on to question number two.  Silent Hill witnessed a
                gruesome murder a few years back.  A brother and sister were
                playing in the road when they were attacked and chopped into
                pieces with an axe.  Torn flesh, smashed bones, splattered blood,
                and finally...  What a terrible tragedy.  What a gruesome end to
                such innocent lives.
                What was the name of the murderer who committed this vile act?
                One, Walter Sullivan
                Two, Scott Fairbanks
                Three, Eric Gein
                Now for our third and final question.  South of the lake is a
                deserted old neighborhood called South Vale.  From there to
                Paleville, the central resort area northwest of the lake, thereís
                only one road you can take.  Just one road, no more.
                The third and final question is:  What is the name of that road?
                One, Bachman Road
                Two, Rendell Street
                Three, Nathan Avenue
                Well, thatís the last of our questions.  Have you got it all
                figured out?  When you know the answers, head to the storeroom on
                the 3rd floor to collect your prizes!  But be careful.  If youíre
    *The announcer laughs.*
    Announcer:  Well then everybody, thanks for tuning in.  See you again
                sometime.  Bye bye!
    *Audience is heard cheering and the radio begins to die out until it is
    silent again.*
    Maria:  What was that?

    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James and Maria make their way to the second floor Day Room.  Near the
    middle of the room is an old, metal refrigerator lying on its back.*
    James:  Thereís something that looks like a refrigerator.
    *The player is then given the option of whether or not to open the
    refrigerator.  If the player chooses to open it the following dialogue takes
    *James struggles to open the refrigerator grunting and pulling the handle
    with both of his arms.*
    Maria:  You canít open it?
    James:  Yeah... Maria, gimme a hand here.
    Maria:  Come on...  Youíre supposed to be the big man around here...
            Howís a little girl like me supposed to help?
    *Maria walks over to the refrigerator and both she and James pull on the
    handle.  The refrigerator opens after only a couple of pulls.  Maria reaches
    in the refrigerator and pulls out a small ring.*
    Maria:  Whatís this?  Not very cute, is it?
    *Maria hands the ring to James.*
    Maria:  Here James, you take it.
    James:  Thanks.

    G.  The Long Hallway
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James and Maria eventually find there way to another room in the basement.
    They are walking down a long hallway when suddenly Pyramid Head appears
    behind Maria.  They run down the long corridor until James reaches the
    elevator.  However, the elevator doors quickly begin to close after him and
    Maria is only able to fit her hand through the small gap in the doors.  James
    begins pulling on the doors attempting to open them.*
    James:  Open up!
    *James attempts to open the doors by pushing some of the buttons on the panel
    within the elevator, but none of them work.  Maria screams ďJamesĒ a couple
    of times.*
    James:  No!!
    Maria:  James!
    *Suddenly a large impact is heard from outside of the elevator where Maria is
    standing.  Mariaís hand goes limp and falls back from the gap between the
    James:  Maria!
    *The elevator doors close.*

    H. On the Hospital Steps
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James walks through the hospital entrance onto the front steps.*
    James:  Mariaís dead.  I couldnít protect her.  Once again, I couldnít do
            anything to help.  Laura has run off somewhere.  Mary...  What...
            What should I do?  Are you... really waiting somewhere for me?  Or is
            this your way of taking...  Iím going to find Mary.....
            Itís the only thing I have left to hope for.

    James:  Calm down, Eddie.  Tell me what happened.
    Eddie:  That guy... he, he had it coming!  I didnít do anything.  He just
            came after me!  Besides he was making fun of me with his eyes!  Like
            that other one...
    James:  Just for that you killed him?
    Eddie:  Whadda ya mean ĎJust for thatí!
    James:  Eddie, you canít just kill someone cause of the way they looked at
    Eddie:  Oh yeah!  Why not?  Til now I always let people walk all over me.

    James:  Eddie!!
    Eddie:  He he.  I was just jokiní, James.  He was dead when I got here.

            you hurt bad?
    Maria:  Not at all, silly.
    James:  ...Maria?  That thing... it stabbed you.  There was blood everywhere.
    Maria:  Stabbed me?  What do you mean?
    James:  It chased us to the elevator.  And then...

    James:  Just before!  Donít you remember?
    Maria:  James honey... Did something happen to you?  After we got separated
            in that long hallway?  Are you confusing me with someone else?

    Maria:  You said you took everything... But you forgot that videotape we

    Angela:  No daddy!  Please!  Donít!
    *James walks into the room he heard Angela yelling from.  In the room he
    finds Angela sitting on the floor and a strange looking monster standing near
    her.  James shoots the monster until it lays motionless on the ground and
    then walks over to Angela.*
    James:  Are you okay?
    *Angela moans and then stands up and begins repeatedly kicking the monster.

    Angela:  Donít order me around!
    James:  Iím not trying to order you.
    Angela:  So what do you want then?  Oh I see, youíre trying to be nice to me,
             right?  I know what youíre up to.  Itís always the same.  Youíre
             only after one thing.
    James:  No, thatís not true at all.
    Angela:  You donít have to lie.  Go ahead and say it.  Or you could just
             force me.  Beat me up like he always did.

    James:  Eddie!  What are you doing?

            piece of shit.  But ya know what?  It doesnít matter if your smart,
            dumb, ugly, pretty...itís all the same once yer dead.  And a corpse
            canít laugh.  From now on, if anyone makes fun of me... Iíll kill em.
            Just like that.
    *Eddie puts the gun to his head demonstrating the last statement he made.
    Eddie then turns around and begins to walk out of the room.*
    James:  Eddie, have you gone nuts?
    *Eddie slowly turns around.*
    Eddie:  I knew it.  You too.  Youíre just like Ďem, James.
    James:  Hey I didnít mean anything.

    *James walks into some type of meat locker that has animal carcasses hanging
    throughout the room.  Eddie begins speaking but James is unable to see
    exactly where he is in the room.*
    Eddie:  Do you know what it does to you, James?  When youíre hated, picked
            on, spit on, just cause of the way you look.  After youíve been
            laughed at your whole frigginí life.  Thatís why I ran away after I
            killed the dog.  Ran away like a scared little girl.  Yeah, I killed
            that dog.  It was fun.  It tried to chew its own guts out!  Finally
            died all curled up in a ball.  Then ďHeĒ came after me, I shot him
            too.  Right in the leg.  He cried more than the dog!
    *James hears a loud bang and quickly turns around to see whatís behind him.
    When he turns around nothing is there.*
    Eddie:  Heís gonna have a hard time playing football on whatís left of that
    James:  You think itís okay to kill people!  You need help, Eddie!
    Eddie:  Donít get all holy on me, James.  This town called you, too.  You and
            me are the same.  Weíre not like other people.  Donít you know that?!
    *Eddie finally walks out of his hiding place behind James.*
    Eddie:  Letís party!

    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James finds his way to the ďRestaurant Lake ShoreĒ in the hotel.  When James
    begins to leave the room, a loud sound is heard from the piano.  James looks
    over and Laura is hiding behind the piano hitting random keys.*
    Laura:  Did I scare you?
    James:  Yeah, you did.
    *Laura jumps out from behind the piano, walks past James and sits down on a
    chair near him.*
    Laura:  Youíre here to find Mary, arenít you, James?  Well... have you?
    James:  No... is that why youíre here, too?
    Laura:  Sheís here, isnít she?  If you know where she is, tell me!  Iím tired
            of walking.
    James:  I wish I knew...
    Laura:  But she said it in her letter...
    James:  What letter!?
    *Laura stands up, reaches in her pocket, and pulls out a letter.  She extends
    her arm out towards James.*
    Laura:  ...Wanna read it?
    *James walks over and takes the letter from Laura.*
    Laura:  But donít tell Rachel, okay?
    James:  Whoís Rachel?
    Laura:  She was our nurse.  I took it from her locker.
    *James reads the letter and the following text appears on the screen*
    *My dearest Laura, Iím leaving this letter with Rachel to give to you after
    Iím gone.  Iím far away now.  In a quiet beautiful place.  Please forgive me
    for not saying goodbye before I left.  Be well, Laura.  Donít be too hard on
    the sisters. And Laura, about James... I know you hate him because you think
    he isnít nice to me, but please give him a chance.  Itís true he may be a
    little surly sometimes, and he doesnít laugh much.  But underneath heís
    really a sweet person.  Laura... I love you like my very own daughter.  If
    things had worked out differently, I was hoping to adopt you.  Happy 8th
    birthday, Laura.  Your friend forever, Mary*
    *When James finishes reading the letter, Laura is drawing pictures on a
    fogged up window leading out onto the restaurants porch.*
    James:  Laura... How old are you?
    Laura:  Um, I turned eight last week.
    James:  So Mary couldnít have died... three years ago...  Could she really be
            here?  Is this the ďquiet, beautiful placeĒ she was talking about?
    Laura:  Me and Mary talked a lot about Silent Hill.  She even showed me all
            her pictures.  She really wanted to come back.  Thatís why Iím here.
            Maybe youíll get it if you see the other letter...  The one Mary...
    *Laura reaches in her pockets and canít find the other letter.*
    Laura:  I must have dropped it!
    James:  Laura...
    Laura:  I gotta find it!
    *Laura runs past James and out of the room.*
    James:  Laura!

    C. Room 312
    - - - - - - -
    *James eventually makes his way into room 312 where he plays the video that
    he and Mary forgot in the hotel 3 years ago.  Once the video begins to play,
    Mary is shown standing next to one of the windows in room 312.*
    Mary:  Are you taping again?  Címon...
    *Mary sits down in a chair next to the window and looks out.*
    Mary:  I donít know why, but I just love it here.  Itís so peaceful.  You
           know what I heard?  This whole area used to be a sacred place.  I
           think I can see why.  Itís too bad we have to leave...  Please promise
           youíll take me again, James.
    *Mary begins coughing.  The video starts to become gritty and it looks as
    though the footage of Mary has been copied over some other footage.
    Eventually a shaky picture of Mary is shown, lying in bed.  James walks up to
    the bed and looks over her.  He leans over and seems to be talking to her,
    although there is no audio.  Suddenly James reaches for the pillow behind
    Maryís head.  The video footage then becomes very scrambled showing bits and
    pieces of the footage in room 312 as well as some other very grainy footage
    of James at Maryís bedside.  The grainy footage seems to show James
    smothering Mary, although it is so unclear it is hard to tell.  Eventually
    the video footage ends and there is only static shown on the television.
    James is then shown sitting in a seat in front of the television with his
    head down.  James says Maryís name (although, it is not captioned).  He stays
    in this position for quite a while until Laura walks into the room.  She
    walks between James and the television and then stands there and begins
    talking to James.
    Laura:  So there you are, James.  Did you get the letter?  Did you find Mary?
            If not, letís get going already.
    *Laura pushes Jamesí shoulders.*
    Laura:  Okay?
    *James looks up.*
    James:  Maryís gone.  Sheís dead.
    Laura:  Liar!  Thatís a lie!
    James:  No, thatís not true...
    Laura:  She... she died Ďcause she was sick?
    James:  No.  I killed her.
    *Laura waits a while before responding.*
    Laura:  You killer!  Whyíd you do it?!  I hate you!!  I want her back!  Give
            her back to me!
    *Laura pushes Jamesí shoulder.*
    Laura:  I knew it!  You didnít care about her!  I hate you, James!
    *Laura hits Jamesí shoulder several times.*
    Laura:  I hate you!  I hate you!  I hate you!
            She was always waiting for you... why... why...
    *James shakes his head back and forth while looking down.*
    James:  Iím sorry...
    *James stands up.*
    James:  They Mary you know isnít here.
    *Laura walks out of the room.*
    James:  Laura, Iím sorry.
    *James slumps back down in the chair.  Suddenly, Maryís voice can be heard
    over the radio, although it is quite staticy.*
    Mary:  James.  Where are you?  Iím waiting.  Iím waiting for you.  Please
           come to me.
    *James stands up.*
    Mary:  Do you hate me?  Is that why you wonít come?
    James:  That voice...
    Mary:  Please hurry.  Are you lost?  Iím near.  Iím waiting nearby, James.
           Please.  I want to see you, James.  Canít you hear me?  James...
           Please, James...  James...  James...  James...
    *The radio finally dies out.*

    D. Final Meeting with Angela
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James makes his way through a door to a room where there should be a metal
    staircase, but when he walks in there is a wooden, carpeted staircase and the
    whole room is on fire.  Angela is standing on the staircase looking at a
    strange picture on the wall.  James walks up the staircase to talk to Angela.
    Angela turns around and faces James.*
    Angela:  Mama!  Mama, I was looking for you.
    *Angela walks towards James, while James backs away from her.*
    Angela:  Now youíre the only one left.  Maybe then....  Maybe then I can
    *James continues to back away from Angela.*
    Angela:  Mama, why are you running away?
    *Angela puts her hands on Jamesí face, then on his shoulders, and then back
    on his face.  She examines his face closely and then backs away.*
    Angela:  Youíre not Mama.  Itís you...  I, Iím sorry...
    James:  Angela, no....
    Angela:  Thank you for saving me...  But I wish you hadnít.  Even Mama said
             it...  I deserved what happened...
    James:  No Angela, thatís wrong!
    Angela:  No.  Donít pity me.  Iím not worth it....
    *The tone of Angelaís voice suddenly changes.*
    Angela:  Or maybe you think you can save me?  Will you love me?  Take care of
             me?  Heal all my pain?
    *James doesnít respond.*
    Angela:  Thatís what I thought.  James.  Give me back that knife.
    *Angela reaches her hand out towards James.*
    James:  No... I, I wonít.
    Angela:  Saving it for yourself?
    *Angela begins to walk up the fiery staircase.*
    James:  Me?  No...  Iíd never kill myself....
            Itís hot as hell in here.
    Angela:  You see it too?  For me, itís always like this.

    E. Final Fight with the Pyramid Heads
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James walks into the middle of a strange room and then hears Mariaís voice
    calling out to him.*
    Maria:  James!
    *When he looks up he sees Maria and two Pyramid Heads on top of a platform.
    Maria is being held upside down in some type of metal contraption and there
    is a Pyramid Head on either side of her.*
    James:  Stop!  Leave her alone!  Leave us both the hell alone!
    *One of the Pyramid Heads rams a spear through Mariaís back, presumably
    killing her.  After seeing this, James drops to his knees.*
    James:  I was weak.  Thatís why I needed you....  Needed someone to punish me
            for my sins....  But thatís all over now....  I know the truth....
            Now itís time to end this.
    *James then fights both the Pyramid Heads.*

    F. Recording (optional)
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *If James makes his way to the Reading Room in the alternate hotel there is a
    set of headphones on a desk by the window.  If he decides to listen to them
    the following dialogue is heard.*
    James:  Maryís going to die...?  You... you must be joking...
    *Suddenly the camera zooms out the window and to show a bed floating in the
    air.  This serves as the backdrop to the entire recorded conversation.*
    Doctor:  Iím very sorry.
    James:  But youíre a doctor.  Itís your job to heal people!  How can you just
            let her die!
    Doctor:  Please calm down. As her doctor, I promise Iíll do what I can.
             But... thereís still no effective treatment for her condition.
    James:  How long does she have?
    Doctor:  Iím afraid Iím not sure.  3 years at most....  Perhaps 6 months...
             Itís impossible to say with certainty.

    G. Hallway Conversation (optional)
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    *James makes his way to a long hallway where he hears a conversation that he
    and Mary must have had while Mary was still alive.  A player can exit the
    hallway before the conversation is over.*
    *James says Maryís name (it is not captioned).*
    Mary:  What do you want, James?
    James:  I, uh I brought you some flowers...
    Mary:  Flowers?  I donít want any damn flowers.  Just go home already.
    James:  Mary, what are you saying?
    Mary:  Look!  Iím disgusting!  I donít deserve flowers.  Between the disease
           and the drugs, I look like a monster.  Well what are you looking at?
           Get the hell out of here.  Leave me alone already!  Iím no use to
           anyone.  Iíll be dead soon anyway.  Maybe today, maybe tomorrow....
           Itís be easier if theyíd just kill me.  But I guess the hospital is
           making a nice profit off me, they want to keep me alive....  Are you
           still here?  I told you to go!  Are you deaf?!  Donít come back!
    *Mary pauses for a moment.*
    Mary:  James....  Wait....  Please donít go....  Stay with me.  Donít leave
           me alone.  I didnít mean what I said.  Please James....  Tell me Iíll
           be okay.  Tell me Iím not going to die.  Help me...

    A. ďLeaveĒ Ending
    - - - - - - - - - -
    *After climbing a long set of metal stairs, James finds his way into a
    strange room with no ceiling and a metal floor.  There is a bed sitting near
    the middle of the room.  A woman who looks like Mary is looking out the
    window.  James walks up to the woman at the window.*
    James:  Mary!
    *The woman turns around and she and James look at each other for a short
    Maria:  When will you ever stop making that mistake!  Maryís dead.  You
            killed her.
    James:  Maria...?  Itís you...  But I donít need you anymore.
    Maria:  What?  You must be joking!  But I can be yours...  Iíll be here for
            you forever.
    *Maria walks towards James.*
    Maria:  And Iíll never yell at you or make you feel bad.  Thatís what you
            wanted.  Iím different than Mary...  How can you throw me away?
    James:  I understand now.  Itís time to end this nightmare.
    Maria:  No!  I wonít let you!  You deserve to die too, James.
    *Maria then transforms into the final boss and she and James fight.  After
    James has caused enough damage to her, she falls to the ground, but is still
    alive.  Maria will repeat Jamesí name over and over again until she is
    finally killed by one last blow.*

    bed in what is probably their home.*
    James:  Mary..
    *Mary coughs a couple of times.*
    Mary:  James...
    James:  Forgive me...
    Mary:  I told you that I wanted to die, James.  I wanted the pain to end.
    James:  Thatís why I did it, honey.  I just couldnít watch you suffer.
            No!  Thatís not true...  You also said that you didnít want to die.
            The truth is I hated you.  I wanted you out of the way.  I wanted my
            life back....
    Mary:  James... if that were true, then why do you look so sad?
    James:  Mary...
    Mary:  James...  Please... please do something for me.
    *Mary reaches at her side and grabs a letter and then hands it to James.*
    Mary:  Go on with your life.
    *The scene switches to a foggy grave yard and Mary begins to read her letter
    to James.  To see what the letter says skip down to the ďD. The LetterĒ
    portion of this document.  After the letter has been read James and Laura are

    James:  Maria.  Maria... Iím done with you.
    Maria:  What do you mean?  But I can be yours...  Iíll be here for you
            forever.  And Iíll never yell at you or make you feel bad.
    *Maria puts her hand up towards Jamesí face, but he pulls away.*
    Maria:  Thatís what you wanted.
    James:  Now I understand.  The problem is... youíre not Mary.
    Maria:  No James.  I wonít let you!  Iíll never let you have your Mary back!
    *Maria then transforms into the final boss and she and James fight.  After

    *Mary begins coughing again.*
    James:  No, thatís not the whole truth.  You also said that you didnít want
            to die.  The truth is... part of me hated you.  For taking away my
    Mary:  You killed me and youíre suffering for it.  Itís enough, James.

    Mary:  James...

    limp and James drops it from his face.*
    *James stares at Mary for a moment and then picks her up off of the bed and
    carries her out of the room.  The screen goes black and a car door can be
    heard closing.*

    James:  Mary...  Iím sorry it took so long.
    Mary:  Didnít you want to see me?
    James:  Yes, I wanted to see you.  Even an illusion of you....  Thatís why I
            came here.
    Mary:  Thatís not true, is it?  You killed me...
    James:  I couldnít watch you suffer.
    Mary:  Donít make excuses, James.  I know I was a burden on you.  You must
           have hated me.  Thatís why you got rid of me.
    James:  Itís true... I may have had some of those feelings.  It was a long
            three years... I was... tired.

    D. The Letter
    - - - - - - - -
    In my restless dreams,
    I see that town.
    Silent Hill.
    You promised youíd take me
    there again someday.
    But you never did.
    Well Iím alone there now...
    In our ďspecial placeĒ
    Waiting for you...
    Waiting for you to
    come to see me.
    But you never do.
    And so I wait, wrapped in my
    cocoon of pain and loneliness.
    I know Iíve done a terrible
    thing to you.  Something youíll
    never forgive me for.
    I wish I could change
    that, but I canít.
    I feel so pathetic and ugly
    laying here, waiting for you...
    Every day I stare up at the cracks
    in the ceiling and all I can think
    about is how unfair it all is...
    The doctor came today.
    He told me I could go
    home for a short stay.
    Itís not that Iím getting better.
    Itís just that this may be
    my last chance...
    I think you know what I mean...
    Even so, Iím glad to be coming
    home.  Iíve missed you terribly.
    But Iím afraid James.
    Iím afraid you donít really
    want me to come home.
    Whenever you come see me,
    I can tell how hard it is on you...
    I donít know if you
    hate me or pity me...
    Or maybe I just disgust you....
    Iím sorry about that.
    When I first learned that
    I was going to die, I just
    didnít want to accept it.
    I was so angry all the time and I
    struck out at everyone I loved most.
    Especially you, James.
    Thatís why I understand
    if you do hate me.
    But I want you to
    know this, James.
    Iíll always love you.
    Even though our life together had
    to end like this, I still wouldnít
    trade it for the world.  We had
    some wonderful years together.
    Well this letter has gone on
    too long so Iíll say goodbye.
    I told the nurse to give
    this to you after Iím gone.
    That means that as you read this,
    Iím already dead.
    I canít tell you to remember me,
    but I canít bear for you to
    forget me.
    These last few years since I
    became ill...Iím so sorry for
    what I did to you, did to us...
    Youíve given me so much and
    I havenít bee able to return
    a single thing.
    Thatís why I want you to live
    for yourself now.
    Do whatís best for you, James.
    You made me happy.
